Abstract : In a cylindrical region the author considers electromagnetic fields independent of the axial coordinate: controlling the time evolution of such fields by means of boundary currents, likewise independent of the axial direction, is equivalent to controlling, simultaneously, two wave equations; one with boundary control of Dirichlet type, the other of Neumann type. This paper provides a preliminary study of control problems of this type and indicate what is necessary for extensions of our work. (Author)
